  1. I don't really have anything in the tank to feed so, no. I throw some sinking pellets in for my shrimp and snails, but not much. What ever it was, it was gross. It smelled like bad breath and rotten egg. The weird thing was, it only covered the TOP of everything. It wasn't under, or inside of anything. I took my tower our of the back chamber, but it was not on that at all. I stilled scrubbed it and replaced all the filter media (purigen and filter floss). I'm thinking if it is some kind of fungus, it might come back and I will probably have to scrub everything again. I'm hoping not, and I might do a WC in the middle of the week and see if that helps.
  2. I can't leave it like this, so I am gonna wing it and just remove everything and scrub them down. I will remove everything in back chambers as well and scrub them too.
  3. I don't know what this is, it covers everything. The only place it's stringy is the output nozzle. It doesn't seem to effect my coral. Not sure if it needs to be treated with medicine or just scraped off and do a major water change. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  4. Funny you should ask- Things were going great. My coral are growing and doing great, but I have some kind of fungas or bacterial bloom. I was just going to scrape it all off and do a huge water change, but was thinking that might make it worse. Maybe it needs some kind of medicine? Here are some pictures. It't kinda a white fuzzy something all over everything. It is a little stringy on the output nozzle, but other then that, not stringy. Anyone have any idea what this is and what I do?
  5. kinda looks like a sponge, but it's hard to tell.
  6. Is the rock attached to that base? If you could lay it down flat over both the purple rocks, it might give it a cave look, and give you more room for coral
  7. Nice looking tank. Having live rock and live sand does not give it an almost "instant" cycle. I started with both and it still took a month to cycle my tank. There are other methods with additives that people do, but I don't know anything about that. But, your tank does look good, and I would assume that after 3 months it has cycled already. The coral doesn't add to your bio load, only fish and maybe CUC, but not sure about CUC. If you keep doing the water change your doing you should do great. What is your feeding schedule for fish and coral?
  8. I don't know what it is, but it's kinda cool looking. Hope it's a good guy and you can keep it.
  9. okay, thanks. gonna go plop him in
  10. I have been adding 2 Tablespoons of my water to the bag every 10 min. Its been 1/2 an hour and it has gone up 1 point to 1.201. If I keep doing this, it will take about 2 more hours, that seems kinda long.
  11. I just brought home a snail and my LFS salinity is 1.020. I keep my salinity at 1.025. I don't want to bring the level up too quickly, so how long should this take?
  12. If you don't fix it, it will spread. I had a little ball on the tip of a rock. I was new, thought it was kinda cool, but everyone told me to get rid of it. So glad I did, because years later I had it and didn't jump on it as soon as I should have and it took forever to get rid of!!
  13. They do look like mushrooms. I LOVED my red mushrooms. They did spread all over the tank, but harmed nothing. The GSP come in a variety of shapes and colors, some more green then others, some have longer tenticles (I don't know what they are called). You could try putting them in a different location and see if they color up a bit. I had my GSP for years, they did so awesome, I could cut pieces off of it and trade them for more coral.
  14. UPDATE: My algae problem has totally gone away, just by shutting a blind. (It's been about 3 or 4 weeks) And my coral are happy, getting their color and size back just by switching out the heater and putting the probe in the right chamber. Still gonna take it slow, I want to see some growth before I add anything new. But it finally looks like I'm back on track
